    you might wanna take those SAT's again or if that doesnt work out, try the ACTs. EC's are good and you might actually be recruited for rowing if you're good at that

    I would also advise taking the SATS again. I was in a similar boat taking them for the first time and getting a 1940, and I am looking at Colgate as you are. Get a good SAT tutor and study study study! If you get those in line I would say you have a chance.
